Betsy Haley, Bay Area Food Stylist
Welcome to Betsylife!
I’m a commercial and editorial food stylist based in Oakland, CA; the heart of the San Francisco bay area. I help to create beautiful food imagery for photography, film and social media.
I’m a native Chicagoan turned Californian, with a bachelors degree in fine art. I started cooking in my 20’s and began working professionally as a food stylist after first working as a television producer for several years. Being on a set and collaborating with a creative team is my happy place.
Creativity is what drives me every day. There is nothing I love more than bringing ideas to life.
Beyond food styling, I offer custom photo and video services for brands large and small. I also write this blog, which is a showcase of beautiful food photography, clever and unique recipes, and custom video content. If you’re a brand looking for exposure, I’d love to introduce your products to my audience.
While currently based in northern California, I’m available to travel for projects world wide.
I’m married to The Hubs, have two rascally dogs, Olive (a black lab) and Summer (a blonde dachshund) and spend my days frantically trying to keep up production of all the wild ideas I’m constantly dreaming up both for this blog, and for my clients.
I’m also a yoga enthusiast, very proud aunt (11 nieces and nephews), lover of the outdoors, and a travel nut.
I’d love to work with you on your next project! Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your business needs.
